He was very involved in youth activities both as a father and a community member, participating in scouting, “Y” Indian Guides, Masonic Lodge, Rainbow Girls, and PTA. He was dedicated to his work and family and enjoyed travel and history.

Throughout the years he spent many visits and holiday weekends at Lake Tahoe with his daughter and family. He later remarried in Lake Tahoe overlooking the lake.

He is survived by his wife, Luisa; stepchildren, Kevin and Kimberly; children, Jennifer, Jeff, Steve, Pam and husband Vic, Tom and wife Gail, Gary, and Kenneth; their mother, Nancy; and grandchildren, Nina, Tori, Kelsy, Haley and Thomas Graham. May his loving memory live on in all.
